The Tennessee Titans hadn’t played a game in over two weeks because of the recent COVID-19 outbreak the team faced. Despite the long break, the Titans looked as if they haven’t missed a beat, dismantling the Buffalo Bills 42-16 on Tuesday night to remain undefeated.
The Titans were led once again by quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who has proven that with the right coaching and pieces around him he can be an elite NFL quarterback after a bumpy start to his career with the forever-struggling Miami Dolphins.
Tannehill was incredibly efficient, passing for 195 yards with three touchdowns. He also ran for 42 yards and added a rushing TD of his own.
What’s most impressive is that he was able to do this without two of his three top wide receivers, who are still on the COVID-19 reserved list after testing positive for the virus.
Buffalo, who were also coming into the game undefeated, stumbled for the first time this season. Quarterback Josh Allen, who only threw one interception in the team’s first four games, got picked off twice on Tuesday by Titans defensive back Malcolm Butler.
The Bills will host the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs next week, who also suffered their first loss of the season in Week 5. The Titans face the Houston Texans, who got their first win of the season on Sunday.
